State Department of Agriculture Program: Minnesota
State Department of Agriculture of Minnesota
The MDA’s mission is to enhance Minnesotans’ quality of life by ensuring the integrity of our food supply, the health of our environment, and the strength of our agricultural economy.
The Minnesota Pavilion is a section of booths for Minnesota companies to showcase their products at wholesale tradeshows. The synergy created by our Minnesota Pavilion is a way for your business to stand out at these crowded tradeshows, and the cost-savings can be significant.
Minnesota Grown: The Minnesota Grown Program is a statewide partnership between the Minnesota Department of Agriculture and Minnesota producers of specialty crops and livestock. It was created nearly 30 years ago by specialty crop growers to differentiate their produce from produce grown thousands of miles away.
